My tomatoes are really lagging behind this year, but some peppers are starting to turn color! I was *very* late in sowing cucumbers and beans, finally managed to get some in a couple of weeks ago, and now I have tiny seedlings under row cover. Will they produce before frost? Hard to say. But I figured I had a better chance planting late than I'd have if I'd just left the seeds in the packets, LOL.
Basils are growing nicely since they're on a soaker hose... it's time to harvest them again, before they all bloom out. I'm letting a few blooms form to be sure of having seed at the end of the season. :-)
I'm here! There does seem to be a divide between zone 6 & 7 in terms of season length and what can be grown, although we can still grow some long-season tomatoes and hot peppers that aren't possible in zone 4...
Is there a plan to migrate this cubit to the new AllThingsPlants site? Or is there just a general veggie forum over there? I need to stop by the forum list again and see what's up there.
Thanks for the plug, Stormy... though I realize I'm a few months late in seeing it. I'm fine with zone 6ers starting a thread on my cubit if you want zone-specific chat someplace with the owner present.
I'm always the odd one out - the only other zone 8 folks I see on Cubits or ATP are in the northwest, which is a completely different climate from mine. I tried to get some discussion going on the zone 8 forum here when I first joined, but I was only talking to myself.
ATP has a general vegetables forum. There are some regional groups as well, but not by zone. I'm over there as well, but not as much as I'm on Cubits.
